Lassoing A Fly

A few years ago my family got together for a barbecue. I can’t remember if it was a holiday but I know it was in the summer.

Anyways, my sister and sister-in-law were sitting and talking and all of a sudden I see my sister holding onto a fly and my sister-in-law had a piece of long hair. Well she was tying that hair around the fly’s head and the next thing I know they let go of the fly and held onto the hair and that fly was flying! He flew near my brother and he kind’a backed up like some beast were after him and we laughed hysterically.

We were all laughing so hard. Then others took turns holding the hair as the fly flew. Eventually they let him go and he flew away with the hair attached, LOL. What a wonderful time we had. Get together's are not very often but we have a ball when we do get together.

At first, I wasn't sure if this was a joke or not. Then I realized why my siblings and I never did something like this. None of us has ever had long enough hair to truly lasso a fly!

Great story!

Ha ha ha. Yes my sister and I both have long curly hair. I realize I should have video taped it for Funniest Home Video's. Betcha it would have took first place LOL

You would have had the animal right's activists on your back for cruelty to it.

Lol, I have the long hair but certainly not the patience to lasso a fly. Interesting memory.
